Ive always thought, the Chinese and Russians, maybe even N.Koreans were planning a long term plan to eventually launch a coordinated strike against America......they know that it will eventually be them or us......so.........could the Russians be putting the final chess pieces in place?
The Polyus spacecraft, also known as Polus, Skif-DM, GRAU index 17F19DM, was a prototype orbital weapons platform designed to destroy Strategic Defense Initiative satellites with a megawatt carbon-dioxide laser. It had a Functional Cargo Block derived from a TKS spacecraft to control its orbit and it could fire test targets to demonstrate the fire control system. The Polyus spacecraft was launched 15 May 1987 from Baikonur Cosmodrome Site 250 as part of the first flight of the Energia system, but failed to reach orbit.

A Russian satellite, as in a, one? What about the hundreds of American spy satellites flying over any and all the countries they want to fly over?
